Early Graduation

Students must apply for early graduation no later than 1 semester prior to the year they wish to graduate.


EX:  A 10th grader wanting to graduate a full year early must apply in the Spring of their Sophomore year.  A Junior wanting to graduate in December of their Senior year must apply in the Spring of their 11th-grade year.


Applicants should obtain credit verification with a counselor to formalize the student’s plan for early graduation. This may include students needing to purchase courses during the summer or school year.  (Weatherford ISD does not offer Summer School for advancement.)  Students may not graduate early without an endorsement and 26 credits. 


Parent and principal approval are required. Students meeting graduation requirements before the scheduled graduation ceremonies may participate in the ceremonies.
